  • Even though the SD14 drove me crazy with off-colors and locking up, it has a wonderful sense of depth in it's images. Beautiful shot David! I've considered getting one of the dp's with that sensor, ...
  • Thanks Jim. It was a nice bonus, considering we had to hide under an overpass while the storm blew over. Even got a tiny piece of rainbow once we got out to the lake (Lake Michigan - from ...
  • Replied in my set up so far
    Since I don't have any lenses that work with AF, here's how I have the system set up Shutter button, half-way is AEL lock AF/AEL button is set to LV Magnification That way, as long as appropriate ...
  • The manual section is for Aperture priority mode (A)
  • Tom, are you concerned with the range of focus increasing when the lens stops down? I didn't notice a switch for DOF preview, like most SLRs have. I rarely worry about this, but you've got a valid ...
  • Good point on the couple walking and the water movement. I have only tried SFD once, and it was when the camera was overheating, and I had no tripod. Here's the OOC:
  • Replied in Deep blue water
    sd Quattro with 10-20mm 4.0-5.6 A small but intense storm had just passed over, and the water reflected a very deep blue color.
  • Generally speaking, the sd Quattro can use any SA mount len. However, AF function may not work correctly. I have 5 Sigma lenses of older generations. The all can be used on my sd Quattro, but none ...
  • Are you trying AF Tom? I couldn't get any of mine to consistently focus, or even lock onto a good focus, in AF. Manual focus with the peak detection has been working amazingly well. Like I'm back ...
  • I still had the camera on Auto ISO, and so it ended up with 800. Other images from 800 were not as good, but this is okay. I've been using a Fujifilm X-E1 for several years, and I can just shoot, ...
  • Created photo thread Colo - 59yo from Columbus OH
    First western gorilla to be born in captivity. sdQ at iso 800. Not as bad as I thought it would be. 70-200mm 2.8 lens
  • Just a hope. I've had pretty decent luck so far with focus. And if there's time and it makes sense, the magnifier is great. I used it for some long distance shots in Chicago, to make sure the ...
  • From a purely technical standpoint, I completely agree. The Merrills are (at the moment) the last technically correct X3F sensor. I tried the SD1 camera, and the camera itself was just too ...
  • I have tried that a long time ago. And thought about it for this image too, but don't have the SW installed anymore. There's certainly a lot of detail in both the highlights and the shadows. Would ...
  • Replied in 6 Upside Down
    USAF Thunderbirds at the Chicago Air & Water Show, Aug 21 2016 Taken with sdQ and 70-200mm 2.8 (non-OS model) -John
  • Thanks! I guess the colors are a bit extreme compared to what I saw. I'm sure I can adjust, it's probably a combination of settings. Still learning. -John
  • I'm not amazingly happy with the this shot in color, but this is really a case where SFD would have been more appropriate (no tripod to make that happen). But the results of Fill Light in SPP ...
  • From what I've seen so far, iso 800 is where you have to switch to monochrome. I can't get colors out of iso 800.
  • Thanks Vitée. Colors and detail seem really nice with the sdQ. With the lenses I'm using, it's all manual focus, so it slows me down a little, and the EVF also slows things down when going for a ...
  • Thanks Dwayne! I'm often the wildlife photographer that hasn't a clue to what I just photographed, so all new info is appreciated. -John
